    Sep 13, 2017, 3:31 PM - Fibreglass Judge Dredd Helmet from eBay - Accurate ? #1

    Hello! I'm relatively new to this forum and decided that my next project was to dust off a Judge Dredd helmet I bought from eBay maybe 5 years ago. I'd got as far as trimming and priming, but then lost interest. Just wondered whether you guys think it's accurate as the last movie's helmet. I'd be pleased to hear your comments...

    That's the plan! I've ordered a motorcycle helmet visor and some window tint film. I'm going to try to apply gold leaf for the badge.

    Finished it a few months back but thought I'd post a few pics of the helmet in progress and finished. I also made a liner using a piece of rubber exercise mat covered with some black car head liner material. That was tricky to get right - a lot of trial and error to get it to match the profile of the edge of the helmet.

    In terms of painting it, I applied silver over the primer, then satin black, and then Fiat Racing Red. The black underlayer darkened the red slightly which was what I was after. Weathering was done with a Dremel for the deep scrapes, and a combination of 2500 grit paper and metal polish for the more subtle wear marks.
